Warmington Tapped to Build First New Ladera Ranch Homes Since 2008

Costa Mesa-based Warmington Residential California has been selected by Rancho Mission Viejo to build the first new neighborhood in four years within the gated village of Covenant Hills in Ladera Ranch in south Orange County.

The Legacy Collection will present 28 predominantly single-level luxury homes on four streets on the west end of the custom lot neighborhood in Covenant Hills. They will range in size from approximately 3,041 to 4,159 square feet and some will include an optional second level casita for family or guests, a bonus room for games and home entertainment, or a combination of casita-loft-bedroom configuration. Prices are anticipated to begin from the low $1 millions.

“We are very pleased to have been given the opportunity to build on these 28 homesites in a location previously designated as custom home lots,” said Matt Tingler, executive vice president of Warmington Residential California. “We believe this collection will be very complementary to the existing neighborhood and are enthusiastic about debuting these large, single-level floorplans. They feature dramatic architecture and place strong emphasis on an indoor/outdoor lifestyle with spacious private centered and or open-side courtyards and incorporate many sophisticated features and options.”

Tingler said that the decision to subdivide these 28 former custom homesites was born out of the belief that there is a segment of the new home market that is currently not being addressed in south Orange County, specifically single level living for buyers who desire a single level luxury home on a generously sized homesite with ample space between each home. Forty percent of these sites are set on elevated single-loaded cul-de-sac streets with far reaching views of the San Juan Valley.

“These residences will have many custom-like qualities in that buyers will be invited to be part of the floorplan selection process since we are offering a variety of personalization opportunities for each available plan,” he explained. “Different interior configurations and multiple private second story living spaces can be selected. Buyers who come into process early will have a unique opportunity to work with us to customize their residence.”

Warmington is now previewing The Legacy Collection from the Covenant Hills Sales Gallery at 63 Bell Pasture Road in Ladera Ranch. A fully interactive digital presentation includes floorplan modules, artist’s renderings, an interactive site map and more. The sales gallery is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Construction on two model residences will begin later this month and the neighborhood will have its grand opening in the fall. For more information, and to view interactive floorplans, go to . A representative for The Legacy Collection may be reached at (949) 481-6502.

The Warmington group of companies has a long history of homebuilding in Ladera Ranch and offered homes in the very first village when it debuted in 1999. Over the years as the planned community evolved, a previous Warmington company built and sold homes in various villages, with the last neighborhood selling its final home in 2008. Today, many of these homes are among the most beautiful and coveted in Ladera Ranch and remain in high demand in the resale market.

The newest Warmington companies craft beautiful, state-of-the-art family homes in only the finest locations and today have approximately 15 new home communities in various stages of construction throughout California and Nevada.

Founded as a custom estate builder in and around Hollywood in 1926, the first Warmington company gained early recognition as the “homebuilder to the stars” with a long list of celebrity clients. Over the years, the Warmington group of companies expanded and began building production homes on a larger scale while retaining the quality craftsmanship and attention to detail for which it had become known. The Warmington group continues to celebrate this rich history while remaining focused on the future.
